Project Veritas is begging donors not to abandon them after the board of directors removed James O’Keefe from the company he founded, according to a leaked email.
Since O’Keefe was removed from the organization, Project Veritas has lost hundreds of thousands of followers on social media.
“We hope that you might continue to give us a chance,” the email, obtained by Jack Posobiec,begged donors. “We can’t stress how separate the board’s role is from daily operations here at PV. We are still grinding and pursuing stories of great public importance.”
We understand and share your frustrations,” the email continued. “We all love and respect James and hope he returns. This is difficult for everyone.”
Addressing O’Keefe’s status at the organization, the email said that “he specifically said he did not resign, and the board did not fire him.”
The board claimed he was only placed on “temporary suspension until the audit was completed” after allegations that he was using “donations for private benefit.
